Taylor a teacher at Brenau college
was made at an early hour this morn
iag She was awakened by someone
tapping on her window and going

slightly A smouldering fire in the
grate cast a low light across the room
and as she raised the eurtain a loud
report was heard and a bullet crashed
through the heavy glass and struck
Miss Taylor on the neck Fortunately
the thick glass broke the force of the
ball and the bullet did not penetrate
the skin
An alarm was immediately given
and officers with bloodhounds started
in pursuit After going about one
mile circuitously over the city the
dogs which were yqung gave up the
chase No clew has been obtained as

The Society of the United Charities
If now badly in need of funds In
fact the officers of this worthy chari
table association have gone to the
lmit in an effort to help the poor and
as a result the treasury is depleted j
The cold weather recently caused
many cases of sickness and there haa
been much suffering among the poor
The calls for assistance have been I
numerous and fooG1 clothing and fuel
have been asked for in much larger i
quantities and more frequently than
has been known since the organization I
of the society This has been a heavy I
drain upon the funds given by the I
charitably inclined and at present i
nothing can be done in the way of as
f sisting the poor II
Yesterday there were no funds on
hand and the secretary was compelled l
r tOt refuse assistance to parties who j
were in every way worthy of help J
Those who are in arrears for their i
oues are urgently requested to pays
them over to the secretary at the ear j
Best possible moment Should they le
in doubt as to the amount due they
can easily ascertain the same by call
ing up Secretary DAlemberte or by
calling upon him at his office

EARTHQUAKE LT
BATON ROUGE
TWO DISTINCT SHOCKS EXPERI
ENCED IN CITY AND SUR
ROUNDING COUNTRY
Baton Rouge La Feb 4Baton
Rouge and the surrounding country
were visited by a very distinct earth
quake Friday afternoon which caused
sOme excitement and led many to in
vestigate the cause of the unusual dis
turbance
There were two shocks each follow
ing in raid succession of the other
sounding very much like the explos
Ion of two dil tanks or boilers and j
shaking the earth for a period of about j
twenty seconds j
Practically every one in the city
felt the shook and although no one i
thought that it was an earthquake j
many laid it to local causes I
Some panes of glass were broken
out of the state capitol and the offi
fcials in that building thought one of
the ornaments on top of the building
had been blown to the ground Many
thought that a boiler in one of the
I
many large manufacturing plants had i
exploded but an investigation proved
the shpck to have come from none of I
these sources i
Telephone messages from different
parts of the parish show that the shook
was felt within a radius of over fifteen I
miles north of the city
No further damages than the break
ing of window panes is reported
